When considering the safety and security of the United States, it's crucial to recognize the diverse and complex factors that contribute to the overall safety of each state. These factors range from crime rates and law enforcement effectiveness to issues related to firearms, social equity, transportation, and personal welfare.
This report aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of the safety levels across all 50 states in the U.S. To achieve this, we have compared states across five key categories: Crime and Law Enforcement, Firearms and Violence, Welfare and Personal Security, Safety & Social Equity, and Transportation Safety. These categories offer a holistic view of the factors that contribute to the overall safety and danger levels in each state.
Key findings from the data include:

To determine the safest states the 50 states were compared across five key categories:
Each of these was defined via individual metrics that were representative of the category. There were a total of 32 metrics which are listed below. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 being the max. Each metric had state scores distributed from 0 to 100.
Finally, each state’s weighted average was determined across all metrics to calculate category scores. These were then summed to generate the final rank order of the states.
